LOS ANGELES, July 11 (UPI) -- The NBC comedy "Scrubs" will start airing on cable's Comedy Central in the fall of 2006, it was reported Monday.
Comedy Central has picked up all four seasons that have already aired as well as the fifth season, which gets under way later this year, the Hollywood Reporter said.
Comedy Central's Senior Vice President of Programming David Bernath said although he usually focuses on original programming, "Scrubs" "fits perfectly" with the network.
Financial details of the deal were not revealed. "Scrubs" is produced by Walt Disney's Touchstone Television.
